I had a ton of viruses, and my thread in HJT has resolved them. Even though the viruses were cleaned up, accessing the internet with a normal boot would take minutes, or never complete. However, when I boot in safemode, I can access the internet instantly. As part of the cleanup and testing I installed Firefox to see if the problem was with IE. Firefox hung also, so I de-installed it. Now, when I boot normally and open a browser (IE), it doesn't connect to anything. says can't access site. I have 100mb dsl. However, when I boot in safe mode, it works and I can get out into the internet with no problem. Therefore, I suspect it's a virus, or some setting(s) that got changed and I don't know what it is. Please help!!
